What hiring managers say

“BloomTech graduates are able to hit the ground running pretty quickly because of a lot of their hands-on experience, because they worked on some cross-functional teams and real-to-life projects..."

Logan McLain, Director of Professional Services at Kitestring

“The big difference between BloomTech and bootcamps is that BloomTech affords their students more opportunity to learn hands-on and in teams and intentionally diversifies their experience..”

Paul Chatterton, Director of Engineering at Divvy

Hiring Company FAQs

What is your admissions process?
Bloom Institute of Technology is your go-to for great hires – and that starts with our rigorous admissions process. 

All BloomTech learners are required to complete a series of aptitude exams from Criteria Corp. These are exams often used in employment and a high score usually correlates with success in school and when job searching. In addition to the aptitude tests, applicants for certain programs must complete a coding challenge as a way to introduce themselves to the basics of their chosen course. We offer precourse work to supplement an applicant's learning, especially if they struggled on the coding challenge.

Certain applicants are also required to provide proof of having completed secondary education. For learners who are unable to show this documentation, an ability to benefit test is an option.

This process helps us ensure that everyone we admit has the aptitude necessary to thrive in the program and in their future careers as engineers, data scientists, and more.
Is my contract with you still valid?
Yes. If you have an active contract with us, our commitment to you as a partner will not change. Our legal structure has not changed so no update to our contract is required. 
Has my point of contact changed? 
No. You will continue to receive the same exceptional account support you have always had, including the same contact - you can reach them at the same email address with the new '@bloomtech.com' domain.  
Why did you rebrand? 
We founded Lambda School with the mission of offering an alternative to the traditional model of higher education so more people can start rewarding careers. We are more committed than ever to removing barriers that stand in the way of a better career and higher income. To better reflect our commitment to cultivating opportunity for even more people, we chose to rebrand to our new name, Bloom Institute of Technology. 

The many learners who are left out of or underserved by traditional higher education deserve an alternative path to financial mobility. BloomTech provides that. We train learners in the skills needed to grow their careers in technology and help them get a high paying job.  
Can I still hire graduates from BloomTech without paying the membership fee? 
Yes. You can hire any graduate that applies directly to your job listing. However, if you are looking for BloomTech’s account team to source the candidates for you, there will be a membership fee.
When does the membership fee begin?
The membership fee will begin on January 1, 2022 and you will have the opportunity to renew the membership annually.  
Is there a place where we can view your graduates?
Not at this time.
What has changed about my experience/expectations as a company looking to hire?
You should expect to move away from transactional candidate experiences, and into a more vested partnership where BloomTech is helping to be a thought partner in how to mitigate your hiring challenges.  
What specific improvements have you made to be rebrand and have a membership fee?
We have matured to where, as a partner, we understand that finding candidates is not the current average employer challenge. While we will still provide candidate support, we will also provide additional resources to mitigate your hiring challenges, such as BloomTech organized hiring days specific to you, info sessions to promote your organization, and dedicated sourcing resources only for your company.  
What makes BloomTech grads ready for a job?
BloomTech learners are vetted right from the beginning for vigor and grit. Throughout the program our learners are not only experiencing team projects, tight deadlines, and other critical success factors, they are also being tested to show competency in specific skills. To be considered for certain opportunities, graduates must have shown competency in all viable skills.
When can we hire grads from your Backend Development program? 
Our first cohort will graduate in June 2022. We expect to then have monthly cohorts ready for backend career opportunities.
Do you still offer Fellows under the same terms as before? 
Fellows are now offered as a benefit of the membership fee. There are no additional fees or contracts to engage fellows.  
What do I get for my membership fee?
Being a member of BloomTech gives you access to a dedicated account team who is focused on providing you with workforce strategy expertise in order to alleviate some of the stressors within your typical hiring process. You will receive services beyond sourcing graduates for open roles. The membership fee is a nominal fee which is meant to represent a shared, and agreed upon, commitment from BloomTech to deliver against your business objectives. Our goal is to be able to pivot priorities along with you to ensure our support stays up-to-date with your company’s needs in order to provide a true partnership.  
How do we see what available graduates you have that could fit our open roles? 
Our partnership team is dedicated to understanding your soft and technical needs, as well as any additional environmental factors, in order to supply you with a short list of strong candidates. When we have completed sourcing the strongest matched candidates for your needs, we will share their resumes and profiles directly with you.  
What curriculum do your grads go through? 
You can refer to our course pages for Data Science, Full Stack Web Development, and Backend Development to learn more about our curriculum. If you'd like more information, please reach out to support@bloomtech.com.
